Commuter Meal Memberships

Dining Plans aren't just for residents. At Longwood University, Dining Halls, Lancer Cafe and Specialty Coffee Houses are social environments where students can sit, relax, socialize, study and become part of campus life. We have many plans for commuters to choose from to make sure they are part of that experience.

Commuter plans are sold on a semester-by-semester basis.  You will need to sign up for a meal plan each semester that you wish to be on a meal plan.  Please visit the Longwood Dining website, and follow the "Commuter" link, to sign-up or change your meal plan. 


Want to add, change or drop your plan?

Commuter Students wishing to purchase a meal plan for the 2016-2017 academic year may do so through the Longwood Dining Services webpage.  Students wishing to drop or downgrade his/her meal plan must do so prior to 5pm on Monday, August 29, 2016 (Fall) or Wednesday, January 25, 2017 (Spring).  Plans can be added or upgraded at any time throughout the semester, however they are not prorated.

  • For Commuter students meal plans are optional, however you can opt to purchase any of the offered meal plans.  Please remember to sign up for a meal plan each semester.
  • All meal plans also come with 7 guest meals per semester. 
  • Meals are per semester and do not carry-over to the next semester.  Bonus Dollars will carry-over from Fall to Spring semester if a plan is purchased both semesters.  This is true for resident and commuter students.
  • All Meal plans are non-transferrable and are meant for individual use only.   Meaning that only the meal plan holder for each individual plan can use the meals assigned to that plan.  To treat a friend or family to a meal, Guest meals or Bonus Dollars can be used as available.
